wash it away lyrics – black lab

wash it in the sea
let it soak all night
wash it in the sea
let the saltw*ter wash it away

soak it in bleach
till it’s white on white
soak it in bleach
till the blood just washes away

hang it in the wind
let it blow all night
hang it up high
let the high wind blow it away

hang it in the wind
let the sun burn bright
hang it in the wind
till the blood just washes away

i have waited wasted years
for the child that’s come and gone today
say what about this wasted fear?
how can i just turn and wash it away?

if i can then i will, then i will wash it away
if she can then she will wash it away
if i can then i will, then i will wash it away
if she can then she will, wash it away

forty years spent one by one
forty years of life just slipping away
what i’d give for a firstborn son
forty years of blood just washing away

i have waited wasted lives
i have waited long enough i’d say
say what about this wasted child?
how can i just turn and wash it away?

if i can then i will, then i will wash it away
if she can then she will wash it away
if i can then i will, then i will wash it away
if she can then she will, wash it away

so send me an angel
send me the ghost that i was
send me an angel
send me the ghost that i was
that i was, that i am
i will wash it away

she will wash it away
i will wash it away
if i can then i will, then i will, then i will
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
uh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
